Brood, ea,brahma and the likes with a 27locked timing, 2 mags etc., would they be TCS legal?

I ran EA's motors in GT-2 at the TCS regionals here in Aliso Viejo, no problems.
Fred said as long as it's locked timing and not hybrid hand wound armature and can be purchased at a LHS or online, it should be fine!

I'd also be interested... It would be cool if someone could scan some of their baseline setup sheets and post 'm... I'm still having some on-power understeer, off-power oversteer issues.

noticed there are a couple of interesting hopups now available from Tamiya,

RC Carbon Mount Spacer - TA05 for Damper Stay

http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=53882

why would we want to space the shock tower?


and
RC Aluminum Damper Retainer - 1mm Down Type

http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=53876


I assume that these would be used to rectify the ride height issue?

i presume you space the shock tower so you wouldn't need spacers on the shock mounts...

there is a ride height issue even with the shorty springs??

ride height issue is only with the regular length springs.

if you use TRF shocks + short springs + regular retainers, you'll be set.

with the new retainers, i think we'll be able to use the TRF shocks and regular springs and fix the ride height issue. now where can i buy those so i can try it out?

Legal for Regionals. When you run the Nationals, it is hand out motors at the track. GT-2 for '06 will be the RS-540 Black can motor.

They list them on the Tamiay website. Basically 3000 / 3300 / 3600 / 3700 / 3800 for Regionals. Nationals will be hand out 3300 (probably stick pack) for GT-2.

I am using the short white TRF springs at the moment, but they are the hardest short springs that they make,

they look to be available at rcmodel, I may get some as well,

Actually I believe the charcoal springs are harder.

Normally charcoal is harder than white, but they don't make the charcoal in the short type that Rod M mentioned.

I have a set of short charcoal springs that were purchased in a Tamiya bag maybe 1 year ago. Are they not TCS legal?
